Rowan is 5 months old now! I know babies grow and develop a lot in their first year, but man...I feel like this month has been huge for Rowan! Where to begin...
|Double ear infection, a cold, and a little smile|
Rowan is also fighting a cold. He sounds so pathetically sweet when he's sick. I feel bad for him now because it seems like he's hoarse. We thought it may be croup or RSV or something, but the doctor didn't think so. He's not coughing all that much, so that's good. He's still liking to sleep a lot when he's not feeling so good, so that's amazing. Sad though that the only time he takes good naps is when he's sick...
Ok, now onto the fun stuff! Rowan. Loves. Food! We've only tried cereal and avocados, but he loves them. He's a little less enthralled by cereal now...but it's pretty bland so I can't say I blame him. Avocados though...AMAZING! We're venturing into the world of bananas, apples, and sweet potatoes shortly. We're making baby food for him, which I have to say really isn't that hard. Buy some fresh produce, cook it, blend it up with a little milk, and voila! You've got 2 ingredient baby food. It's fun to plan what we're going to feed him. And boy does he love it.
|Tummy time isn't so bad now that I have control|
|Figuring out what this guy does|
We won't have 'official' stats on his size until 6 months, but we know he's still growing. He's still in 6 month clothes and size 2 diapers when we're using disposables. At the last doctor's appointment (when we found the double ear infection) he was 15lbs with his clothes on. So he's continuing to gain weight, which is good...he's just a little peanut though.
His facial expressions are great too. He's personality is shining through more and more each day. I think we're going to have a little jokester and flirt on our hands...
|Why so serious?|
|Oh...I know you!|
|Lemme smile for you|
